International Apparel Federation (IAF) has brought together industry stakeholders who shared their thoughts on key issues of the fashion industry. The first-panel discussion was on “Creating Better Supply Chains Together”. The panel shed light how we should redefine the buyer-supplier relationship to enable supply chains to deliver a more sustainable product, with better conditions for its people and better profitability for the companies. A special focus was given to innovation in supply chain relations better at generating capital and on global standards such as STTI and the OECD’s due diligence guidance.
Miran Ali, Vice President, BGMEA; John S. Thorbeck, CEO, Chainge Capital; Roger Hubert, Managing Director, RMG Sustainable Council (RSC); and Abdullah Al Maher, Head of Business, Asrotex Group took part in the lively discussion as panelists while Matthijs Crietee, Secretary General, IAF, moderated the session.
